The Naples Chef Cooks: Pasta and First Courses—51 Italian Recipes is the result of Sergio Corbino’s vast experience as a cookbook author, food columnist, television commentator, and—above all—as a veteran chef. Here, Chef Corbino has chosen, from the hundreds of recipes in his four published cookbooks, fifty-one pasta and first course dishes that are both delicious and simple to prepare. Special attention has been paid to selecting recipes whose ingredients are easy to find, and a helpful glossary offers shopping advice, cooking tips, and other practical information. As an added convenience for the cook, each recipe also provides measurements in both the metric and American systems, a difficulty level, and an estimate of preparation and cooking times. The Naples Chef Cooks is intended for all those who love Italian food—and especially for those who already know (or who are about to have the pleasure of discovering) the flair that Neapolitans bring to the kitchen.
